1/02/18 A New Playing Field
Taken from The Father Factor by Jim and Merry Corbett
Father God changed all the ground rules established by Satan through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, so that man could live His way and prosper. He created a new playing field and a new way of competing in the game, so to speak- a spiritual way.
God established a new covenant, or agreement, one that moved everyone who entered into it with Him into the spiritual realm. It gave mankind a choice once again, this time initiated and directed by God. In John 6:44a KJV, Jesus tells us: “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him…” Fulfilling Father God’s desire that “none should perish,” the Holy Spirit initiates situations throughout the lifetime of every individual in which he or she has the opportunity to personally accept Jesus and the work of the cross.
Once a person does accept Jesus as Savior and Lord by the confession of his mouth and the belief in his heart that God raised Him from the dead, he becomes born of the Spirit of God and enters into the new covenant with all of its promises and rewards. His eternal “inner man,” or “inner being,” - that spirit which is designed to function spiritually and spend eternity with God - is born, brought to spiritual life by the Holy Spirit. You as a husband and father are in covenant with Father God. You are free to walk in His power to overcome anything that comes your way.
